Extreme makeover coming to the Federal Register
Tuesday - 7/13/2010, 6:00am EDT
The Federal Register, much-maligned for its poor online transition, will launch a more user-friendly Web experience in late July.
According to the National Archives, FR 2.0 will be similar to a daily online newspaper that guides users to sections of interest such as money, environment, world and science and technology.
"Not only will our content be more clearly organized and better presented," David Ferriero, Archivist of the United States, tells Federal News Radio. "But the new Web site will make it easier to find what they need, comment on proposed rules, and share materials relevant to their interests."
Social media will also be integrated to make it easier for users to submit comments and offer feedback.
FR 2.0 will go live in beta form on July 26, the register's 75th anniversary. The final version is expected to be live in 2011.
